Australia is an absolutely classic destination to include on a round the world ticket; the country has always been massively popular with backpackers and with good reason. There are many RTW routes to choose from which include Australia and cover a complete spectrum of prices.
You can incorporate any of Australia's major hubs into a round the world ticket, like Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Cairns, Darwin, Perth, Alice Springs and Adelaide. Most people opt for either Sydney or Melbourne, especially newbies to the Land Down Under.
A really popular option is to fly into one Australian hub, travel overland to another hub and then depart. So for example, you could fly to Sydney, do a bus tour up the east coast, and then fly out of Cairns.
Perth may be the most isolated city on Earth, but we’re pretty sure that makes it perfect for the really adventurous gappers out there.
